This museum was once Freud's Vienna home. It has a great sense of history because he once lived there. Among other things you can see the patient waiting room, his chair, his writing desk, one of "the couches" and other Freud memoabilia, books, photos and the like. Most of the items are not in their original location and have been... More

The museum is in Freud's Vienna apartment. An affordable attraction. Upon entry you are given a free audio guide to wander around.

Just for context, my wife and I are in our early 30s and are somewhat well-traveled. Pretty boring, man. It's Freud's old apartment. They put some pictures on the wall and give you an audio guide. You look at the stuff and listen. I think there are 5 rooms. You can definitely skip this.

If you are interested in Freud and his work then this museum is worth a visit. Audio guide in all languages, lots to look at in cabinets and to read and some achived videos of freud. Do not expect to see his apartment and consulting rooms furnished as it was - this is a museum.

That's why I really liked it. It really is only for people who have a strong connection to Freud and his work. All other should be excused. I imagine this goes against the wishes of the museum administration, but too many people go there just to give themselves a patina of intellectualism. Please, stay home. This place is not for...

Freud's museum in Vienna is not very large, but it's well worth a visit for anyone who is interested in the legacy of the founding father of psychoanalysis.

Having just graduated with a degree in psychology this was something I thoroughly enjoyed. Being in the room where Freud had his practice. Reading the letters he wrote to his family and also the letters trying to get him out of the country was fascinating. My husband enjoyed it although not sure our friend how accompanied us did. Definitely worth... More

As a professional therapist, standing in Freud's consulting room was a truly special moment for me. This is where it all began . . . Having said that, my husband also found our trip to the museum worthwhile, so this isn't just for those 'in the business'. Freud's former waiting room has been restored, with furniture and artwork; the contents... More

This museum piqued my interest and my daughter and I wanted to visit. It's in a great location (not off the beaten tourist path). We dragged my husband along and surprisingly, he enjoyed it. Most interesting was the series of communications displayed prior to his moving to London before the war. One could spend longer, but an hour would be... More
